NY: DONOR WORRY. GTH. “Cuomo and the Democratically-controlled legislature created a Public Campaign Financing Commission to diminish the role of large donors in political campaigns. The commission made its final recommendations this week. They include creating a new system that pays candidates up to 12 times the amount they raise in small campaign donations and capping the maximum donations.”

NY: THIRD PARTY SLAM. NYDN. “The Working Families Party isn’t about to throw in the towel. The union-fueled third party says measures meant to boot minor parties from the ballot in New York will only embolden progressives and could spell trouble for Gov. Cuomo.”
